I bring theatre, and all it encompasses, to everything I do. At its core, theatre is telling a story and there are so many ways to tell, and explore a story. I love using theatre as an entry point with students and adults of all ages, whether it is a creative outlet as we explore acting or using theatre to learn about animals and their qualities. The arts are so important and everyone deserves access. Creativity, problem solving skills, and social-emotional learning are all a part of the arts and our lives.
“Thank you for an incredible class—my son is growing so much from learning from Ms. Krystle. It’s our favorite thing we do all week!” Jenna (Parent), Montgomery County, MD
